_Unity came to Ghana, West Africa, in the 1950s. Until 1985, the name of the movement was Unity Study Group, led by Esther Ocloo. In those days the group did not have a minister. In 1985, Beau Sackey, a Unity student, was invited by Unity School of Christianity to Unity Village to understudy the principles of Unity teachings. He also studied the operation of a Unity church at the Unity Center of South London, under the leadership of Harry Kudiabor, Unity minister.
Foster McClellan, Director of the former Overseas Department at Unity School, ordained Beau Sackey at the Unity Center of South London in 1985. After ordination, Beau Sackey returned to Ghana. He joined with Esther Ocloo at the Unity Study Group for a short period, after which he and other members of the group joined together to found the Unity Church of Accra in the year 1985.
_Unity Movement Ghana Formed
_In the year 1999, Harry Kudiabor, retired Unity minister and founder of the Unity Center of South London, returned to Ghana, his birthplace. Harry met with both leaders of the group and the church and together they formed the Unity Movement Ghana. The movement was registered the same year, 1999.
_Association of Unity Leaders Initiated
_Shortly after, the printing of the Daily Word and the operation of the Silent Unity prayer ministry was transferred to Unity Movement Ghana. In 2001, Unity School transferred its responsibilities for the overseas ministries, centers and groups to the Association of Unity Churches International. A National School was then initiated in Ghana as well as an Association of Unity Leaders(AUL).
Before the advent of the Unity National School, Unity School was responsible for training licensed Unity teachers. As a result, five licensed Unity teachers completed their training under the leadership of Rev. Harry Kudiabor. These licensed Unity teachers have become the backbone of the National School, directed by Kwesi Erskine-Graham. One of them went on to the ministerial school in Nigeria to become an ordained Unity Minister. Some serve as members of the Board of Directors of the Unity Movement Ghana. The board meetings of the Unity Movement Ghana are held four times a year.
_Six Unity Ministries in Ghana
_There are six Unity ministries in Ghana, all located in Accra. Great work is being done under the leadership of Harry Kudiabor.
